The Foundation Of Our Faith

We are instructed to proclaim the truth of the Gospels, but before we do, we have to make sure that we understand that truth ourselves. In today's lesson in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers lays out the biblical evidence of the truth of the Gospel.

Profile Of A Living Faith

What is God's plan for our lives? This is a classic question for any Christian. We do our best to follow the path that God has laid out for us, but sometimes it sure would be nice to know where that path is going! In today's lesson in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers addresses that question.

The General Epistles

Today in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers begins a new series on the books in the latter part of the new testament. These books are called the General Epistles, called such because they were not written to a specific church.

A Light For The Nations

Why, ultimately, does it matter how we spend our lives? God seems to have preferences about how we behave. Why does he have those preferences and how are they relevant to us? In today's lesson in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers sheds some light on these questions.

When God Seems Deaf

If you ever become angry at God, remember that you are not alone. You are not the first or only person to feel that way, or to express those feelings to God. In today's lesson in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers tells us the story of some Biblical figures who felt that anger too.

The Final Sacrifice For Sin

God's actions can sometimes seem totally inscrutable, especially in the Old testament, which is often violent and alarming. Yet the scriptures assure us that God is on our side. But how can we know? In today's lesson in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers provides us with encouragement and shows us why we can feel safe in God's arms.

The Reversal Of A Fallen World

Have you ever found yourself in a state of despair that led you to ask God: "Why don't you do something?" Well, you are not alone in that sentiment. In today's lesson in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers tells us about biblical figures who faced the same struggle.

The Reality Of A Fallen World

We know that we live in a fallen world. We also know that God is working to save the world. If that is true, why does the world seem to continue on in such a fallen state, despite the work of God? Is the world winning? In today's lesson in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers examines this question.

God's Gracious Invitation

One truth of existence is that we are going to be hit by adversity again and again. We can see these moments as setbacks, or as an invitation from God to learn and grow. In today's Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers discusses the choices we make in times of stress.

Patience as the Years Go By

What does patience have to do with waiting on God? What is unique about Isaiah 47? Dr. John Akers teaches on what happens to the captors of Israel which really is true even today as a warning to each individual as well as nation.

Misplaced Trust

A question that often arises in our study of the old testament is why certain passages are relevant. As we have discussed before, every chapter of the Bible was included for a reason. In today's lesson, Dr. John Akers examines a bible story that serves as an object lesson for us today.
